"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."
"Trees give peace to the souls of men."
"If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees."
"To be without trees would, in the most literal way, to be without our roots."
"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky."
"Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day."
"The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk, and then dead timber. The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky."
"Never think that there is nothing attractive in the world. There's always something to inspire you to wonder about the form of a tree, or the movement of leaves."
